  1. Re: Thoughts on Colon Cancer & Chadwick Boseman

    I agree with the doctor, and in fact when I had colon cancer I was practicing every one of his recommendations, both in diet and exercise. Ironically, I had surgery to remove the diseased portion of...
  2. Re: The 17 Best Foods for High Blood Pressure

  5. Re: AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine Study Put on Hold

    Given everything we know about the immense amount of time it takes to produce a vaccine that is both safe and effective (the average period of time is 10 years), it seems to me that the furor over a...
  6. Re: FDA Wants to Ban NAC Now That It Combats COVID-19

  11. Re: Probiotic Skin Therapy Improves Eczema In Children, NIH Study Suggests

  12. Re: Probiotics May Help Manage Childhood Obesity, Study Finds

    I went online to see whether there were any updates to this 2017 experiment, and in fact I found one. Sadly, it's not the news we hoped for. A number of flaws in the original trials appear to...

    Re: The Need To Grow

    Thanks to Mr. Wizard for informing me and to Julieanne for alerting me to the deadline. I had to watch last night's debate among the candidates for Maine's Senate seat, but I'll try to set aside time...

  15. Re: States Are Doing What Big Government Won’t to Stop Climate Change

  17. Re: COVID-19 Vaccine Trial Participant Has Serious Neurological Symptoms

    So as of Wednesday we still have no confirmation that this inflammatory condition was or was not a direct cause of the vaccine. Not helpful.
  18. Re: AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine Study Put on Hold

    This is discouraging, but as of Tuesday it is uncertain whether the illness was directly related to the vaccine. Knowing the history of the early polio vaccine, developers are keenly aware of the...

    Re: Medical Myths: All About Aging

    That's an encouraging article. I continue to do my physical therapy. Even though it has no effect on the pain of bursitis, it continues to strengthen my core. And since I'm not carrying 50-pound bags...
